On tap at The Alibi Room in Gastown. Little head, but a beautiful reddish amber color. Nose is citrus. The flavor? A big load of citrus hops up front, with a bit of malt detected on the finish. Except for the color, this is very reminiscent of the newer, highly hopped IPAs. This is a winner, folks!

Lagerboy (1333) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 27, 2012
Unclear red copper, nice creamy white head settles and lasts. Grassy hoppy aroma. Floral grassy hop taste, mild caramel malt background, a little unbalanced. Average carbonation, medium bodied, medium hopped. Smooth hoppy finish. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

Fatehunter (1399) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUN 20, 2012
Poured into a snifter. Copper color, almost transparent held up to the light with a half inch of white head. Smells like a handfull of hops. Sharp citrus with malty notes. Initial watery taste, then the hops kicking in some bitterness and a slight malty sweetness. There does not seem to be any complexity, pretty one-sided and unbalanced by the bitter. Crisp and bubbly. Light body and quick finish. Not really excited about this beer. The nose and appearance were really good, but the taste was a let down. Not a great drink, but not bad either.

Gerbeer (2001) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 6, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2012 650 ml bottle. Pours a slightly murky orange/brown without much head. Citrus hops aroma with a hint of brown sugar - slightly skunky. Not really red but definitely a hoppy ale. Orange, pine and cedar notes with a bit of malts and resin.

dfearnley (1080) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 2, 2012
Cask contitioned to a 4oz snifter Flowery with underlying spicy and grapefruit notes. Pours a cloudy orange with no head. Only a tiny amount of carbonation and I think this doesn't help with the taste. It starts off watery but beaks into the expected hoppy bitterness. Not impressive as I expected as I've had this from the bottle often.

Ferris (5002) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 2, 2012
Cask - Floral hopps with a malty sweetness. Cloudy amber minimal head. Mellow hops and bitterness prevail malt is well balanced. Much more rounded and subtle. I prefer the bottle.

I’m kind of in a hurry, so let me quickly say this is a slightly hoppy APA. Nothing great, but not that bad either.

Sask89 (418) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAY 21, 2012
Pours a lighter amber colour, slightly hazy with a creamy tan head. Aroma is of caramel malt and light hop scents. Taste is a nice balance between mild sweetness and bitterness, which becomes slightly more bitter in the finish. Creamy on the palate, light-medium body and softer carbonation. A very enjoyable amber ale.

Hey! This is tasty! Pours a light brown/amber. Nice retention of an off-white cap. Muted malty hop nose. Great hop taste, with straw and citrus.
